John C. Reilly (yes, Dr. Steve Brule himself) does an EP with Jack White's personal record label, with two different acts. It's good, and surprisingly subtle.|
John and Tom. Country-tinged blues. Old timey and nuanced. The other guy, Tom Brosseau, has a talented voice; John stays in the background. Jack White drums the hell out of it.
1. *** Soulful old-timey blues number, with big hollow drum in background, into some sort of modern take on Civil War drummer. Other singer has reedy, soulful voice. Yodeling, too!
2. **** Simple folk guitar strumming, laid-back duet, Jimmie Rodgers yodeling.
Becky & John. Lovely '60s style country duets. Great, authentic sound.
3. **Pedal Steel guitar. A Loretta Lynn-Ernest Tubb duet sound, but more hillbilly in the vocals. Intense and whanged-out. Great production. Steel guitar solo!
4. ***** Fragile, again like Lynn-Tubb, but prettier than above duet. Wow, she has a delicate frickin' voice. A heartbreaking piccolo of a voice.
